So I picked up my horse trailer yesterday, It's 7'2H 5'W and 14' Long. She had it listed as an '88 but the title says it's a '76. Which isn't really a big deal to me. It's a hartman roadmaster, I'd like to get it painted eventually, when funds allow as it's a little sad looking, structurally it's sound, there is quite a bit if rust, but it's all surface, there is a plate in the corner of the tack room area that is completely rusted through, but my husband says it's not something structurally important, but since he is a welder he's going to get a new piece and weld it on for me. I'd like to put in a large tinted window on the sides like this http://images03.olx.com/ui/1/78/67/2027167_2.jpg just to allow more light inside, but I'm not sure if that's possible, I guess I'll have to look for windows and see the cost then ask hubby about cutting a whole and installing them. If not my TB will have to get over it I loved that on the way home I could see through the back window into the trailer(even tho it was empty lol). I cannot figure out of it has brakes, there are wires going into the wheels, so I can't imagine what else they are for, but I forgot to ask, and if it didn't it wasn't a deal breaker anyway as I know they can be installed fairly easily.
I don't have my own truck yet, so I'm trying to search for a truck that won't break the bank. It's pretty hard to search for a truck when I have NO idea what the trailer weighs! Does anyone have any clue? Also what minium specs I should look at in a truck. I won't be hauling often, but to get home from lessons I have to travel up a pretty steep hill
